We are CERTIFIED!
Green Box Mushroom farm is very serious about food safety and keeping farm clean. Our farm policy and manual upkeep this on-going tasks and train & monitor our employee daily. As a result, we are certified on three certifications until year 2021.
MGAP is an audit certification that uses industry-wide Food Safety Standards for fresh mushroom growing, harvesting, and shipping.
CNG is “The Grassroots Alternative to Certified Organic”, and is a US-based farm assurance program certifying produce, livestock and apiaries for organic producers who sell locally and directly to customers.
Georgia Grown is a program created by the Georgia Department of Agriculture that seeks to create desire, and increase demand for Georgia’s products. Our mushrooms are 100% born & raised in Georgia.
Speaking of “100% born & raised in Georgia”, I would like to inform that some of mushrooms on the markets are born in China & raised in Georgia. Unfortunately, law does not enforce the vendor or farm to specify the origin of mushrooms yet. Locally grown does not mean they are 100% born & raised local. Be aware of this fact and verify the origin from the producing farm.
